A man who was on probation after recently being released from jail — who had already been arrested at least two other times at the home of pop superstar Taylor Swift — was arrested again early Thursday, with police saying he broke into Swift’s New York City townhouse again, the AP reports.
“Roger Alvarado, 23, of Homestead, Florida, climbed a ladder and smashed a glass door to get inside the pop star’s pad around 2:30 a.m., police said,” the AP reports. “No one was home, according to police, who did not provide information on how he was caught.”
Alvarado, who was on probation after being released from jail Feb. 5, faces stalking and burglary charges, according to the report.
“This is at least the third time Alvarado has been arrested at Swift’s home. The ‘Shake It Off’ singer owns an $18 million, three-story building in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood,” the AP reports. “A break-in in April, in which police say Alvarado used Swift’s shower and slept in her bed, put him behind bars for more than nine months. As part of the sentence, a judge also ordered Alvarado to complete a mental-health program.
“Two months before that, he was arrested for allegedly breaking the front door with a shovel.”
In an article published this week by Elle magazine, Swift said she’s concerned about violence and takes precautions such as carrying military-grade quick-clotting agents to stop bleeding in case of gunshot or stab wounds.
